Turn Postage Stamps into Cash

Current Exchange Rates

Values & rates are per stamp in ANY DESIGN.

NEW CONDITION: New Condition stamps have the highest rates, which means you can get the most money for them. In order to qualify to be New Condition, stamps must not contain any trace of folds, damage, tape, holes, writing, dirt or debris. They must be in complete books, sheets, or rolls. In other words they must be in brand new condition, just as you would get from the Post Office.

USABLE CONDITION: Usable Condition stamps may have folds or minor damage, as long as they can still be used to send mail through the Post Office. Any partial books, sheets, rolls, or single stamps are considered to be Usable Condition. You may still exchange these stamps for cash, but they sell at a lower rate than New Condition stamps.

FACE VALUE: Face Value is the current value of the stamp. It's the retail price it would cost to purchase from the Post Office.
